The Sounds From A Safe festival have announced they’ll be expanding to a five-day festival, taking place from September 10th to the 15th.
In 2017 the festival produced a stellar line-up including The National and Bon Iver but then took a year off in 2018.
Organisers, Cillian Murphy, Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon revealed earlier this year that the festival will return this autumn, with Damien Rice, Feist, Efterklang and more to perform across Cork.
Tickets for Damien Rice and Feist’s shows sold-out almost instantly and due to demand, the festival organisers have now expanded the festival by an additional three days and more artists.
New to the line-up is La Force, real name Ariel Engle, also a member of Broken Social Scene. She’ll be playing songs from her self-titled debut album to Coughlan’s on September 13.
Mélissa Laveaux comes to Coughlan’s on September 14th and mixes roots with folk and indie, which has resulted in heart-warming songs that are a welcomed addition to the festival’s line-up.
On September 15, UK native now Donegal resident Rosie Carney will join the Coughlan’s line-up for an intimate performance of her stunning debut album Bare.
In the stunning setting of St Luke’s, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh and Thomas Bartlett will unveil the collaboration they have been working on in recent months with a performance on September 13.
Cork Opera House will welcome Teaċ Daṁsa’s award-winning production of Swan Lake/Loch na hEala, which makes it’s Cork debut from September 10 to the 12.
Tickets for the newly added shows go on sale on Friday 28th June from the festival’s website http://www.soundsfromasafeharbour.com.
